The Nets have signed Kris Joseph for the remainder of the season following the expiration of his 10-day contract, the team announced today in a press release. Because Joseph was released by the Celtics long before the March 1st buyout deadline, he'll be eligible to play for the Nets in the postseason.
During his first 10 games with the Nets, Joseph saw limited minutes in three of the team's five games, though he failed to record a single point, missing both of his shots from the field and a pair of free throws. Joseph, who was selected 51st overall last June by the Celtics, spent a good chunk of this season in the D-League, playing 27 games in total for the Springfield Armor and Maine Red Claws. The 24-year-old averaged 18.6 PPG in those D-League contests.
Now that they've locked up Joseph, the Nets have a full roster of 15 players on guaranteed contracts as the postseason approaches.
